Church of St Sofia, Sofia

Interesting
The church of St-Sofia is one of the country's oldest sanctuaries. Built on the foundations of a previous church dating from 363, it was turned into a mosque in the 16C, destroyed by two earthquakes and finally restored in 1999. The lofty interior and the beautiful brick vaulting are particularly striking.
